We went to Hakone for a day tour around the mountains and it is just so wonderful to be there in summer. I just have to share some of the photos with you.
View from Mt Fuji:
We took a boat ride on Lake Ashi which is a crater lake of Mt. Hakone. It was so amazing with the sunlight, the light, cool breeze, the blue-green peaceful waters, the luscious greenery. I realized at that point that it's so good to take a break from everything and just immerse oneself in nature and enjoy it. At this point, I am going to let the photos tell their stories. P.S. The maximum size of the photos are available if you click on them.
That's Mt Komatakage with the cute little house at the top.
We took an aerial lift to the top of Mt Komagatake which is 1357m (4452 ft) above sea level. View of Mt Komatakage's peak:
And that's Mei and I with the little house we were so curious about.
